  • El Biffo's rating of the film Grass

    Since this doc was made in 1999, 26 states have legalized marijuana. Sadly, the main result of this is that, in the great tradition of Corporate America to co-opt every progressive social movement and capitalize on it(Pepsi, anyone?), the main beneficiary will be Corporate America. All we needed was decriminalization, not legalization for a big business takeover. Mildly amusing doc has fun clips but missing much info
